    Can't make my modem to work


    I have a Xircom MPCI Modem 56k but I can't make it work yet, I know it's a winmodem, but there's a driver for it, but can't install the driver properly. It says the can't identify the ENVIRiment, also I don't have /dev/modem nor /dev/ttys3 created, but I newbie to all this, this is my second day using Linux (mandrake 9.1) and I don't understand many technical stuff.

    so if someone can help me with simple lenaguage I will appreciate it a lot

    How do you try to install the drivers, and _exactly_ what error messages does it return?

    right now I'm trying with another driver, but now it's requesting the kernel-header which are supposed to be installed already, ignoring this I installed them manually but it gives me an error, it says there's a conflict with files related to glibc.ver.rpm

    what can i do ?

    In what way are you trying to install the drivers? Are you trying with an RPM or are you installing from source?

    The one that is asking for the kernel-headers is from rpm. The other one from source and it says that can't indentify the enviriment.

    I don't think that there is such an error as cannot identify the environment. Can you check the exact error message. Does it have anything with CC or PATH to do?
